    3.1 gets this one to nip in from a length as Guptill plays all around this one, leaving a wide gap between bat and pad. Bravo is sent off on a celebratory run as West Indies strike early in the piece 21/1
    6.6 short ball which Ryder is enticed to have a go as he ends up spooning this one high over backward square, with Simmons getting under it to take a fine catch 37/2
    8.6 traps him in front of the pads as the umpire confirms straightaway. Williamson consults Taylor, but decides to go and not go for the review 45/3
    10.3 gets this one to turn away on off as Taylor seems to have edged this behind to the keeper. Umpire straightaway gives it out, but Taylor shakes his head, not convinced, and goes for the review straightaway. Looks like there is nothing on HotSpot either. But snicko does show that there was a deflection off the edge, so this may very well be upheld. New Zealand four down and with still about 40 overs to go, and over 300 more to get 50/4
    14.2 New Zealand are self-destructing in a big way as BMac gives the charge but hits this straight up, with Charles getting under it at mid-off to take a safe catch 65/5
    19.2 Russell gets Anderson to hit this straight up as this hits high on the blade as he goes for the pull. Bravo is able to get himself under it and take a relatively straightforward catch as the big wicket of Anderson departs for 29 94/6
    24.6 hello? what has happened here? I see Ronchi stalking away and, oh my, now I see it, Ronchi, in an attempt to pull this, went too deep in his crease, hitting the bottom of the stumps with his right foot to go out in one of the more inglorious ways. That is a hitwicket from Ronchi, and one I haven't seen happen in quite a while. It seems today is the Windies' day after all. 125/8
    23.1 back of a length and nipping in as Nathan ends up feeding an edge to the keeper, who isn't going to miss out on this one, as Nathan is sent on his way. West Indies have seven, and New Zealand look to be simply going through the motions now 123/7
    29.5 once again goes for the reverse sweep as Mills charges down the other end, but don't you ever understimate Holder, who fires in a throw which hits the non-striker's stumps directly, as Mills is well short of his ground 160/10
    28.2 and Southee's vigil comes to a non-descript end as he goes for the big shot once more, this time hitting way high over mid-off, with that man, Dwayne Bravo, once again in the thick of it as he gets under the catch. Just one wicket away now, West Indies, from squaring the series 151/9
